Gallery: 75,000 shelter in desperate conditions in South Sudan
Every day, boat after boat arrives at Awerial, on the west bank of the Nile in Lakes state, South Sudan. The boats carry people fleeing the violence in Bor, the capital of neighbouring Jonglei state. With no-one else to turn to, they are being assisted by humanitarian agency Medécins Sans Frontières (MSF). Mostly women and children, the displaced people carry with them the few belongings they could salvage. In just two weeks, more than 75,000 people have arrived in Awerial town.
